Injury claims lawyer in Lundin
Lundin is a small village in Fife, Scotland. Someone passing through, asked the question, how much compensation do you think a whiplash injury pays – it is almost impossible to give an accurate estimated payout for whiplash, because there are so many different things to take into consideration, and people react in much differing ways to the same thing, often resulting in varying degrees as to how their injury affects there life.
What the injury claims lawyer in Lundin thinks and estimated payout for whiplash based on previous cases might be
He thinks that the only way even a reasonable estimated payout for whiplash can be given is based on previous cases that were similar, and similar means just that. If your case ends up in court, which a lot do not, the judge would consider how much hardship the loss of earning, for example, has created. Depending on your financial circumstances, the same loss of earnings could result in totally different situations for different people. Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test will give you an indication of the amount, but it is an estimate, not a guaranteed figure.
Does the fact it happened in a car crash make the estimate any easier?
No it doesn’t. Most cases of whiplash, because of the nature of the injury, happen in road traffic accidents, the sudden impact causing the jolting backward, forwards or sideways that results in damage to the neck area. If this is how you got your whiplash there are a few things to consider before making your claim.
- Was someone else other than you to blame for the accident
- Did the accident happen within the last three years
- Did you have to seek medical treatment for your injury
- The severity of whiplash is not always immediately apparent and can get worse over time, are you likely to have ongoing problems
- Have you had to lose time from work
- Have you had extra costs because of the accident
If this has happened to you, using an injury claims lawyer in Lundin is the way forward.
Who will settle the claim?
That really depends on who was at fault in the accident. In most car collisions it would be the insurance company of whichever driver was at fault. If it turned out the other driver had no valid motor insurance, the claim would be referred to the Motor Insurers Bureau who is there to ensure you do not lose out because the other driver was using his car illegally. If your accident were caused by a run in with a pothole, or a bad road surface, it would be the authority that is responsible for maintaining the road in that location. If the brakes failed on that new car you recently purchased it would be the manufacturer.Open Claim Calculator
